over the last few months ive always seemed to have a problem logging into bhw. on days when i cant login through my direct cable modem if i plug into my router that usualy fixed it as it shifted my ip by 2 digits . yes i have 2 ips. modem ip - router ip both on the same ip block but 2-3 digits apart on the 3rd number. now for the last week i cant even login via my modem or my router ip and im having to use one of thoes cgi web proxies. being a seller here this is a pain as some days the cgi proxie wont allow me to post - only login and view . ive pmd apekillape on yahoo messenger about this but he has no idea either . all i get these days is The connection has timed out The server at www.blackhatworld.com is taking too long to respond. is it possible that some 1 on the same isp as me with an ip from the same block has been banned thus effecting me. i no running a website myself sometimes people instead of blocking an ip sometimes bloc a whole ip range and doing that not only takes out that 1 user but maybe hundreds of users from the same isp as well...thats the only thing i can think of ?
